Families with children are invited to Loughborough’s Polish Community Centre on Saturday between 1.30pm and 3.30pm to help decorate boxes of goods being sent to help Ukrainian refugees.

The community centre in True Lovers Walk would welcome people to join in with the decorating and refreshments will be on sale. Please bring crayons and markers.

The donated items are being sent to Poland where they will be distributed to help Ukrainian refugees.

Before this event, the Polish community will be meeting at the Sockman statue in Loughborough’s town centre to shown their solidarity for the people of Ukraine. They held a similar successful event there last Saturday.
